	[Enter LEONATO and ANTONIO, meeting]

LEONATO: How now, brother! Where is my cousin, your son?
	hath he provided this music?

ANTONIO: He is very busy about it. But, brother, I can tell
	you strange news that you yet dreamt not of.

LEONATO: Are they good?

ANTONIO: As the event stamps them: but they have a good
	cover; they show well outward. The prince and Count
	Claudio, walking in a thick-pleached alley in mine
	orchard, were thus much overheard by a man of mine:
	the prince discovered to Claudio that he loved my
	niece your daughter and meant to acknowledge it
	this night in a dance: and if he found her
	accordant, he meant to take the present time by the
	top and instantly break with you of it.

LEONATO: Hath the fellow any wit that told you this?

ANTONIO: A good sharp fellow: I will send for him; and
	question him yourself.

LEONATO: No, no; we will hold it as a dream till it appear
	itself: but I will acquaint my daughter withal,
	that she may be the better prepared for an answer,
	if peradventure this be true. Go you and tell her of it.

	[Enter Attendants]

	Cousins, you know what you have to do. O, I cry you
	mercy, friend; go you with me, and I will use your
	skill. Good cousin, have a care this busy time.
